Acharya Shunya - Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom
I first heard about Ayurveda, the ancient Indian spiritual healing wisdom, when I started practicing yoga in my late 30’s. It sounded mysterious, far away, and something that would have little relevance to my 1980’s New York lifestyle. As they say, with age (and experience) comes wisdom and for those with open minds and open hearts, new pathways and possibilities. It also brings new opportunities to meet and learn from wonderful teachers.
This week on Destination Unlimited, we have the privilege and pleasure of welcoming one such teacher, Acharya Shunya, who will share her heritage, wisdom and her new book, Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom: A Complete Prescription to Optimize Your Health, Prevent Disease, and Live with Vitality and Joy.
Learning Ayurveda at the knee of her beloved grandfather, who was revered as a saint throughout India, Shunya has become one of the leading American practitioners and advocates. She is the founder of Vedika Global, a spiritual foundation dedicated to elevating consciousness, building community, and serving humanity by illuminating India’s Vedic spiritual traditions of Ayurveda, Yoga, and Vedanta. She was named among the 100 Ayurveda and Yoga Trailblazers by Spirituality and Health magazine and is president of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine.
